    Hey guys,
    I was on steam this afternoon and a guy
    | steamname: Nico Box [Selling]
    | steam3ID: [U:1:120629753]
    | steamID32: STEAM_0:1:60314876

    | steamrep: http://steamrep.com/profiles/76561198080895481

    added me and aked me to sub for his Highlander team. Being a nice guy and seeing no harm in it, I said sure.
    He invited me to mumble and said to download a new version of the software to find his mumble.

    He sent me here
    Mumble-software DOT O R G <-- DO NOT CLICK LINK

    After seeing that this wasn't the official website I asked him if I could use my current version. He says no and I ask if he is scamming me, immediatly after he blocks me.

    To all HG community please watch out for this guy
    or any others like him.

    Go here for a story of someone who was phished.

    It's not a good idea to have a phishing link here even though it says in big letters DO NOT CLICK one person will... And I will feel sorry for them
